eDynamic Learning began five years ago when Kevin Viau, a high school teacher, frustrated by the lack of quality online career and elective courses available to high schools, decided he could offer better options.
In five years, eDynamic Learning has grown to become a industry recognized specialty curriculum provider, delivering a selection of over 50 courses (as of August 2014), to schools across North America.
eDynamic Learning is passionate about providing students with access to exciting and engaging subjects that are not available in many traditional high school settings. Our most popular high school course topics include Forensic Science, Gothic Literature and Culinary Arts.
We are always looking for partners to help us give K-12 students a more personalized learning experience through offering a wide variety of career and elective options.

Since its inception eDynamic Learning has rapidly grown into the leading provider of career and elective courses in North America.
